Glass Earth mixed media painting

This is another mixed media work created with the layered technique I'm experimenting with at the moment. I'm calling these works Glass Earth which is a theme I'll be working on in the next few months. I'm not sure how abstract/literal I'll go with it but it's still on the mining theme. With new technology companies are more able to 'see' into the earth, look for minerals and take apart the land to get them out despite the damage done to the land itself and the people who live on it whose lives are disrupted. Ordinary residents in such areas seem to be powerless, and often financially disadvantaged.
